OECD Taxing Wages.

Taxing Wages provides unique information on income tax paid by workers and social security contributions levied on employees and their employers in OECD countries. In addition, this annual publication specifies family benefits paid as cash transfers. Amounts of taxes and benefits are detailed program by program, for eight household types which differ by income level and household composition. Results reported include the marginal and effective tax burden for one- and two-earner families, and total labour costs of employers.

Key statistical concept
This table reports average personal income tax rates (exclusive and inclusive of universal family cash transfers) for single persons and one-earner married couples with and without children, calculated at the average wage (100% AW). The results, derived from the OECD Taxing Wages framework (elaborated in the annual publication Taxing Wages), use tax and benefit rates applicable to the tax year.
  • The results take into account basic/standard income tax allowances and tax credits.
  • The 'All-in less cash transfers' results factor in family cash transfers (made by central or sub-central government) paid normally in respect of dependent children between five and twelve years of age who are attending school.
  • The sub-central personal tax rates used in this table correspond to those used in Taxing Wages.
  • All rates are expressed as a percentage of gross wage earnings.
  • The figures may differ from those published in Taxing Wages where updated information is available, such as revised AW data.

Average wage (in national currency), meaning the average annual gross wage earnings of adult, full-time manual and non manual workers in the industry (ISIC rev.31 sectors C to K or ISIC rev.4 sectors B to N).

Data for Turkey are based on manual workers in the manufacturing sector (ISIC rev 3.1 sector D)
